CPAC Podcast:: Rep. Jeff Flake

Listen to Ed Morrissey CPAC on internet talk radio

Rob Neppell and I interviewed Rep. Jeff Flake, one of the heroes of the Porkbusters. Flake gave us an update on earmark reform, including his opinion that Republicans still haven't quite figured out the advantage they would have by adopting a full-throated opposition to pork. He describes the caucus' strategy now as a "prevent defense .... when you're 20 points down."

For those who called House Republican leadership to press them to appoint Flake to Appropriations, that battle can still be won. Flake told us that they have delayed the decision, and that the thousands of calls and e-mails had a big impact on their hesitancy to pull the trigger. Go to Make It Flake to continue that pressure.
